It’s fun to watch the Democrats eat “Their Old.”
This is particularly so since we have grown tired of listening to the media’s harping about the dysfunction in the Republican Party.
Remember, Democrat Policy is and always will be failed policy.
Obama may not be a monarch, don’t tell him though, the news may give him a stroke and we would want that now would we?

Obama Is Not a Monarch
Enough, Donna Brazile told White House political director David Simas the day after the midterms.
Democrats are in worse shape than when President Barack Obama came into office — the number of seats they have in Congress, the number of governors, a party approval rating that’s fallen behind Republicans for the first time in recent history, enthusiasm, energy.
The White House, Brazile said when she came to meet with Simas, has got to focus for the next two years on getting the party into better shape, and Obama’s the best and most effective person to get out the message.
As much Hillary Clinton anticipation as there is, two weeks later, Democrats are still reeling and anxious.
Wasserman-Schultz will not likely maintain her position as chair of the Democrat National Committee.
This is a good thing, she carries herself like a pit bull with full-blown AIDS.
Obama may have built his political career without the party — and created anti-establishment alternatives — but he’s a lame duck with a new Congress that’s been elected to oppose him. He needs Democrats. And they need him.
“The base craves his leadership,” Brazile said in an interview later that week, following a meeting of the DNC committee that’s beginning to set the rules for the next presidential nomination.
“They want him in the mix, talking about what Democrats accomplished, what Democrats are fighting for, and what the president has done to make lives better.”
Nancy Pelosi was reelected minority leader. So was Harry Reid. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s term at the DNC isn’t up until 2017. Obama said repeatedly before and after the votes were counted that he wasn’t going to fire anyone because of election results.
But if no one’s going to take the blame for 2014, Democrats are hoping he’ll take responsibility for getting things better for 2016.
(Hope is not a plan, its anticipated failure.)
